Our Learning

Welcome to Year 1.  We are really looking forward to the Summer term ahead and we hope you had a lovely Easter break.

Our topic   Our topic this term is ‘Buckets and Spades’. We will learn about the geographical features of seaside places and make comparisons between a seaside town and Headingley. We will also use simple compass directions and continue to identify on globes, maps and atlases the countries of the United Kingdom, their capital cities and seas surrounding the UK, in our ongoing geography work. We will bring some history into the topic by looking at what seaside holidays were like in the past. In Science we will learn about different types of animals and their habitats.  Our RE focus this term will be around belonging looking especially at the Christian and Muslim faiths. Our PSHCE focus will be Relationship and Changes and our art focus will be 3D form and sculpture. We will develop our computing skills and relate this to our topic by finding, copying and organising pictures of animals and their habitats.

Our Homework


At Shire Oak, we encourage creative, project-based homework to allow children to explore wider aspects of a topic and follow their own interests and ideas.
